Inter Society Officers Workshop 2019

April 26, 2019

The PSEC Inter-society officer’s workshop (ISOW) brings together volunteer leaders from all PSEC member societies. The objective of the workshop is to share best practices for running our volunteer lead professional societies. Each year three topics are chosen for discussion during the workshop. The topics change each year to encourage continued participation and the timeliness of the topic. Roundtable sessions of 30-40 minutes allow participants to discuss and share experiences focused on a topic.

Saturday – June 8th, 2019 10:30am – 2:00pm
University of Washington Facility
7543 63rd Ave NE, Building #5, Bay B (map)
Seattle, WA 98115-8116

Refreshments will be provided

All Officers (current & incoming) from all PSEC engineering Societies are invited to come and exchange ideas with Officers from each of the other local engineering Societies. This is a free, annual event for all PSEC member Societies.

All PSEC reps. should attend & try to also bring 2-3 other Officers from your local engineering Society.

Three 30-40 minute discussion sessions will follow a brief overview of PSEC & the planned program year. There will be a short break for snacks & beverages (being provided), between sessions.

Mentoring – Organizational involvement must start early. How can we inspire the future engineers? What opportunities are there for our members to be Mentors?

Connecting with Members – Many organizations are struggling with engaging members. Engaged members can become future volunteers. How can we keep members coming together and attending meetings? Can we bring members back?

The Future of Volunteer Leaders – Finding ways to engage younger members to volunteer to lead projects, events and become board members. How can we, as societies support and mentor the younger members of our societies?

Typed summaries of the discussions will be prepared later and sent out.

Please RSVP if you can attend (or contact with any questions)
